Black History is No Mystery at NU!

Click here for the Flyer

Here's the official Niagara University flyer for Black History month, the month of February. 

Black History Month was originally launched in 1926 as a week--the second week in February--by Dr. Carter G. Woodson. It became Black History Month in 1976... although people groused that it was the shortest month in the year! When Martin Luther King Day was signed into law in 1983, and slowly adopted across the country, folks started saying that we finally got enough time--as MLK day extends the month of February unofficially as a time to learn about and commemorate black history.

There are some super events lined up for your entertainment and edification pleasure on the flyer I've linked above!

(Please note that I've updated the link to the flyer, since the first posting had a typo on it! Thanks! Feb. 03, 2012)
